The poor little cocktail umbrella. It begins its life the adored centerpiece of your favorite frozen beverage, only to be brought home from its tiki bar paradise and crammed into a nighttable drawer.
Fear not, cocktail umbrella fans. They now have renewed value thanks to the ingenuity of RISD-pedigreed Heather Wells. Assembled in clusters then coated with a protective lacquer and some flame-begone spray–Poof. Totally cool lampshade. It even glows in the dark thanks to a coating of phosphorescent paint, making them a supacool fixture for a supacool little girl’s room.
You’ll find several styles and colors at Heather’s online boutique, Bright Lights-Little City. Plus she does custom if you’ve got something in mind. Pina Coladas sold separately. -Liz[via shelterrific] Get a free nightcap nightlight from Bright Lights-Little City with any order $25 or more!
